The New Trailside Cookbook
100 Delicious Recipes for the Camp Chef
Paperback ISBN: 1770851895
An essential cookbook packed with easy, lightweight, high energy, gourmet recipes and comprehensive outdoor cooking information for hikers, day-trippers, canoeists and wilderness campers.

With Margaret creating delicious, healthy recipes for the camp kitchen and Kevin providing the how-to information, it is a perfect match -- like having Red Green and Julia Child outside with you. Say goodbye to bland, canned meals and hello to satisfying, fireside dishes. This comprehensive book covers everything from making great camp coffee to variations of GORP (Good Old Raisins and Peanuts), from foraging for wild edibles to mastering meals after the ice melts to living off the land. Hikers, kayakers, day-trippers, wilderness and interior campers alike will find options and advice in this handy, pocket-sized guide. Recipes clearly indicate what preparation can be done at home, making cooking at camp quick and easy. Dehydrated options (and detailed instructions) are listed for campers outstaying their cooler's capacity. Dishes include hearty morning starts like Peanut Butter Banana Muffins; easy lunches like Mushroom Quinoa Salad; quick pickups such as Apricot Sunflower Seed Cereal Bars; dinners that make the most of fresh catch, like Herb-stuffed Grilled Fish; and sweet endings such as Roasted Rhubarb with Honey and Rosemary. In addition, there is a section dedicated to cold-weather winter camping, and for those only outdoors for a day or two, a chapter on Weekend Gourmet is the place to go for special meals. Kevin's wilderness skills and Margaret's culinary experience combine in this book to please outdoor enthusiasts of all ages, levels and outdoor locations.
100 Family Adventures
Paperback ISBN: 0711236615
Childhood obesity is increasing year on year. One of the reasons for this is inactivity. Children spend less time outside and more time in front of screens (computers, phones, games, television). Happiness and well-being levels in children are on the decline too. Physical activity causes the release of ‘feel good' endorphins into the body. 100 Family Adventures provides parents with a valuable resource bank of tried and tested outdoor activities for them to enjoy with their children, wherever they live. Particularly inspiring for people who want to get started, but don't know how, the book will help all family members foster a positive mindset that sees challenges as opportunities to rise to; and family time outdoors as great fun and highly rewarding.
50 Hikes in the Adirondacks
Short Walks, Day Trips, and Backpacks Throughout the Park
4th Edition Paperback ISBN: 0881505404
This classic guide to hiking in the Adirondacks has been extensively revised and updated and now includes 5 new hikes. Barbara McMartin has been hiking in the Adirondacks for decades; her family, for generations. She has distilled her vast experience into the 50 hikes offered here, representing a cross-section of the wilderness and wild forest: rugged peak climbs, gentle trips to distant waterfalls, bushwhacks to wild rivers. In all she describes 360 miles of trails to caves, uninhabited lakes, wetlands, cliffs, and fire towers across the Park's 6 million acres. The hikes range in length from 1.5 to 13.5 miles. Each hike description includes a topographic map, mile-by-mile directions, and information on distance, difficulty, terrain, and hiking time. An overview chart makes it easy to pick a hike for every ability. Throughout, McMartin provides commentary on the natural history of the region, along with colorful incidents from Adirondack history. 50 black and white photographs, 51 maps, index.
